May 30 (UPI) -- Colorado's Telluride Film Festival will kick off Sept. 3 as planned despite the coronavirus pandemic, organizers announced.
"We are not ignorant of the devastation facing the world. We feel the fear and distress too. This is why we are committed to observing all guidance as suggested by the consensus of voices of the scientific community with whom we are consulting now. This will not be a business as usual event. Things will look and feel very different," a statement from the festival said.
